NewPlainville Girl trailer attempts to make sense of one of the most controversial cases in modern American history. 

Elle FanningStars Michelle CarterHulu’s limited series on Carter’s case focuses exclusively on Carter. Carter, 19, was found guilty in 2017 of involuntary murder in the death her boyfriend. Conrad Roy III.

Carter encouraged Roy, in the so-called “texting suicide” case, to kill himself via text. It was her last call to Roy that Carter found guilty. In which Carter ordered Roy back into his truck, as it was filled with carbon Monoxide, Carter was found guilty. Roy committed suicide at 18 years of age.

The community attempts to comprehend the tragedy through the closing of Carter’s trailer. This case was described as “precedent Setting” and brought new questions to courtrooms, including how technology can play an implicit role in murder.

For her part in Roy’s murder, Carter was widely demonized. Carter’s distinct hair and eyebrows were inherited by Fanning. He attempted to create a picture of an innocent girl. “All that he could think about was dying,” she said. I just wanted to do my best for him.”

The series will follow Carter through her 2017 trial and feature flashbacks of her relationship with Roy, played by Colton Ryan.
